One aspect of technology that many people and businesses are beginning to implement is aerial photography and videography. Two ways to capture stunning footage from a bird’s eye view are with drones and with helicopters.
Their primary task is to capture, store, and transmit data. So as IT departments consider integrating more drone data into existing enterprise business processes, they face new data governance requirements. As drone technology matures, it is important for companies to know what it means for their information technology and software.
DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, looks forward to the advances in drone regulatory procedures that will be enabled by the innovative proposals offered by the 10 state, local and tribal governments chosen today in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Integration Pilot Program (IPP).
A highlight of his Aug. 2 panel discussion on “The Role of Data and Research and Development in Policymaking,” was Governor Cuomo’s same-day announcement of $5 million in investments that will be used to support the state’s unparalleled commitment to the growing Unmanned Aerial Systems industry (UAS) in Central New York.
Aviation safety auditing company Wyvern (Booth 4632) announced a pair of contracts for its Exact drone operation audits this week. Pennsylvania-based Wyvern has partnered with Acend, a technology platform that provides pay-as-you-go insurance to drone operators. Under a separate agreement, Wyvern will conduct an Exact safety audit for drone operator Cinematic Aerospace of New York.
“Cinematic Aerospace is exactly the type of customer we had in mind when we developed EXACT,” said Art Dawley, CEO of Wyvern, “as they are a leading drone operator committed to the highest level of safety, quality and risk management. EXACT will help them further differentiate their business from their competitors.”
Today, the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has finalized the first operational rules for routine commercial use of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or “drones”), opening pathways towards fully integrating UAS into the nation’s airspace. These new regulations work to harness new innovations safely, to spur job growth, advance critical scientific research and save lives.
